Agoraphobic woman - why? Delusional girl - telling the truth? A page-turner!
on 15 January 2015
What if you were stuck in your own house, prevented from leaving not only because of the terrible weather but due to agoraphobia, and a young girl has weaseled her way in and is now making wild accusations about your husband and won't leave?
What intrigued me the most about this novel was the perspective of the agoraphobic protagonist. Upon reading, I discovered it was actually told from both her and the girl's perspective, weaving a non-linear tale that challenges the reader to try and figure out what is truth and how both of them ended up in the situations they are now. A brilliantly written novel which will keep you hooked, and which will make you rethink the role of professional carers in society.
